Today I tapped. The first 1/2 glasses were foaming, but the bubbles were tight and beer tasted carbonated. Later in the afternoon(east coast) the beer had lease foam and tasted good. I have a 4 ft hose on now , but have a 6ft ready if I need it. When I did the calculation the first time , it suggested a 4ft drafting hose. I am going to wait and see after a few glasses. Somebody has to suffer the consequences. I forgot to tell you that I started this tasting at 9 am.
